2nd LBRN-LONI Scientific Computing Bootcamp

Title Date Times Venue
2nd LBRN-LONI Scientific Computing Bootcamp May 27 - 29 2019 800 AM - 500 PM PFT ROOM 1236

HPC@LSU will hold the 2nd LBRN-LONI Scientific Computing Bootcamp on May 27 - 29 in Patrick F. Taylor Hall (PFT), Room 1236 at LSU, Baton Rouge, LA.

Scientific computing is becoming more ubiquitous for all types of research areas. Skills and knowledge that are necessary to take full advantage of the power of computing, however, are often inadequately present in both curricular and extracurricular training. The purpose of this workshop is, by both presentation and hands-on experiences, to help attendants understand the usage of popular scientific computing programming tools and prepare for their future computational study and research career.

In two days the attendants will learn:

  • Practical knowledge about scientific computing and command line interface of Linux
  • The basics of Python programming language and using it in scientific computing
  • Introduction to R programming language with its applications
